A little taste of Jamaica will make its way downtown thanks to Jon Manning, who will open UJerk Caribbean Eatery (850 Euclid Ave.) in the former Cleveland Pickle/Hatfield's Goode Grub space in the City Club Building. The fast-casual restaurant will specialize jerk chicken in various forms.

UJerk opens for business on July 3.



“We really want to promote jerk chicken – that’s the main concept,” says Manning.

The chicken will be seasoned with a traditional jerk chicken recipe, but will be only moderately spicy, say the owner. That chicken will star in salads, sliders, sandwiches and wraps. A handful of other items, such as fresh juices, jerk chicken cutlets and a bone-in meal platter with french fries and coleslaw, will round out the menu.



“Cleveland is known for great food and I’m excited to be a part of that community,” says Manning.
